Macro monday - Waterlily magic

It is a pleasure participating another edition of macro monday hosted by Lisa's Chaos. You will find some excellent macro images out there. Here are my pics for this week's macro monday.

This blue water lily survived our mild winters and popped up blooms in june. It will continue blooming till october. I am growing it in a round clay pot not very large.

And here is the close up. My favorite blooms of all. And guess what it is fragrant as well.

Exquisite images. I prefer the second shot because of the luminous quality of the light and colors. Nice work!

Oh so pretty and the colors are spectacular. Do you have them in a pot or in a pond? Water lilies grow in the water right?
